Finally … A pair of Jaywalkers

I KNOW I am stingy with pictures. I just hate hooking up the camerca to the computer, BUT good news, I can now start a new pair of socks because my jaywalker, finally has a mate, which means I have a pair, which means…. the hard part now is picking out what yarn to pick next with what pattern.

It’s about time. The jaywalkers have been driving me crazy because I was ready for the new yarn.

I hate flags at half staff.

I hate flags at half staff. They make me sad. It’s almost a physical hurt. I’m not sure if that will make sense to anyone, but it does. Today it made me cry. I was sitting a red light and looked over. The flag was so beautiful. The wind was blowing, and the day felt really cool. It was one of those really large flags, so being at half staff was even more pronounced. Tears for the loved ones lost.

My mom’s birthday was Sunday. She would have been 49, and I miss her terribly.

Jessica AND Eric

Jessica AND Eric booted right out of the Big Brother house. Can you believe it? My favorite two players gone with in 50 minutes of the other. I was so geeked about Dick and Danielle when they first got in the house, but now…. I hate them. Ok, so hate is a strong word, I am just so tired of her whining and his meaness. I hope Zack or Jamica win. Also, Big Brother has two more weeks, and that sucks too.

I’m still in love with the new job. I love working for such positive people. That’s so important to me, especially after my last one. The hours are good, so I can’t complain there either. I just haven’t knit in a couple of days. I NEED/want to, but I haven’t had the mental umpf to follow the patterns I am working on. I need to get something mindless going.

The kids have adjusted to school SO WELL. They are loving it. I’m so glad. The beginning of every year is so scary for me. What if they get a teacher who doesn’t teach in the style that they learn. That is a horrid way to spend a year.

 The week-end is coming, and ALL of my Fridays are half days. I’m planning on knitting when I get home.

This is one of those days when I have to listen to this song over and over again. Literally. I should be so happy about my new job. Yes, another one, but now I’m just a mess and having a hard time getting the motivation to even go. It’s day two. Add a sick child to this mix, and it’s even harder.

No knitting. No pictures. I have a few F.O. I should be taking pictures of, just haven’t.

Peter Gabriel’s Don’t Give Up. 

In this proud land we grew up strong
We were wanted all along
I was taught to fight, taught to win
I never thought I could fail

No fight left or so it seems
I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
Ive changed my face, Ive changed my name
But no one wants you when you lose

Dont give up
cos you have friends
Dont give up
Youre not beaten yet
Dont give up
I know you can make it good

Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that wed be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

Drove the night toward my home
The place that I was born, on the lakeside
As daylight broke, I saw the earth
The trees had burned down to the ground

Dont give up
You still have us
Dont give up
We dont need much of anything
Dont give up
cause somewhere theres a place
Where we belong

Rest your head
You worry too much
Its going to be alright
When times get rough
You can fall back on us
Dont give up
Please dont give up

got to walk out of here
I cant take anymore
Going to stand on that bridge
Keep my eyes down below
Whatever may come
And whatever may go
That rivers flowing
That rivers flowing

Moved on to another town
Tried hard to settle down
For every job, so many men
So many men no-one needs

Dont give up
cause you have friends
Dont give up
Youre not the only one
Dont give up
No reason to be ashamed
Dont give up
You still have us
Dont give up now
Were proud of who you are
Dont give up
You know its never been easy
Dont give up
cause I believe theres the a place
Theres a place where we belong

Noro Striped Scarf

I am in LOVE. I’ve been working on the Noro Striped Scarf for about a week now. I first saw it here… http://brooklyntweed.blogspot.com/2007/04/noro-scarf.html  Isn’t it beautiful. I even did it with the 1×1 rib, which is a big deal because I HATE ribbing, but this scarf, it is so worth it. It’s knitting up beautifully, and it’s making me long for cold weather. Just so I can wear it. I promise pictures of this to come. I love this knit so much, I’m going to do it again.  I should be done with this one today.  YAY! Maybe when I finish this ,I will do the gusset on my 2nd Jaywalkers so they can be done. I want to wear them, I’m just so not interested in the yarn in anymore, especially with all the yummy sock yarn I have sitting in the sidelines yelling… “Knit me!”
